5 Super Simple Steps To Get Luscious Lips This Summer

The secrets to luscious lips are simple. It just takes a
little bit of effort every day and attention to your overall health. Soon your
lips will match your stunning summer wardrobe. A few key products and
techniques are all you need and it does not have to cost a fortune.

Step 1: Exfoliate with a soft brush
Exfoliation is vital to get rid of dead skin cells and impurities. All
you need is a good baby brush or any brush that has very soft bristles. Brush
all over your lips gently for around a minute. A hard brush will damage this
delicate area and cause abrasions. Some websites recommend toothpaste as an
exfoliant but this is far too drying for the lips.
Step 2: Moisturize
A high-quality lip balm is essential to moisturize your
lips. Prevention is better than cure. Don’t let them dry out to begin with. Use
a lip balm with a high SPF protection if you are going out in strong sunlight.
Apply lip balm after brushing your teeth in the morning and
carry one with you so that you can re-apply during the day. Then apply again
before you go to bed. Some lipsticks dry and chap the lips so wear a good lip
balm as a base underneath your lipstick.

Step 3: Treat with oil
Around once a week your lips will need
a nourishing oil treatment. You can make your own from coconut oil, olive oil, Vitamin E or cocoa
butter. Apply it before you go to bed and it will work overnight. When you wake
up your lips will be super soft and silky smooth.

Step 4: Remove pigmentation
This is where DIY treatments are the best but you don’t have
to spend hours making fiddly recipes. All you need to do is mix a few drops of
lemon juice with few drops of honey. Spread it thinly on your lips and leave
it for few minutes before you wash it off. You can combine this stage with
exfoliation if you add some granulated sugar to the mixture. It tastes
delicious too!
Step 5: Apply a quality lipstick
A high-quality lipstick is the finishing touch to your look.
The shade is up to you but all products of Goban Cosmetics are superb.
Get lip liner and lipstick of the same shade. Always get a lipstick which stays
on your lips and does not rub off when you eat or drink.
First, apply lip balm and allow it to absorb whilst you use
a lip liner. Then take a small amount of foundation on your finger tip and
apply it to your lips. Next, you can apply a layer of lipstick using a lip
brush. Multiple layers are better than one thick layer.

Finally, use a soft tissue to remove the excess lipstick by
dabbing carefully. You can always top the look off with lip gloss for that
extra shine.

    I use to rely on cream lipsticks previously to not make my lips look dry because I was too lazy to exfoliate them EVER!! Gradually I realised cream or matte, lipsticks are making my lip drier and since I found soo much difference in the overall texture and tone of my lips!!
